Theology is held captive to an Enlightenment view of its foundations in the modern university setting, restricting it to something resembling religious studies. The author argues that faiths must be free from this straight-jacket and, hence, various theologies should be allowed to be honest about their starting points and interact freely in the academic setting. The author recognizes many different models but favours what he calls the 'theological option' whereby theology is allowed to operate freely in the setting of 'Christian universities'.
